Hello fans of the GT. I just got done dipping the back end badges on Kim Jung El. I felt he had too much Chrome. Will be doing the grille, belt line, and inserts on the rims (style package) to eliminate the chrome. Will update photos when I get around to it.
No, its actually best not to remove pieces when working with plasti dip. Leave about an inch in all directions and spray the whole area. I did 6 coats with 25 minutes between the coats. Then you peel the excess dip off. The little parts inside the letter come off with a toothpick.
And yes, my car is named Kim Jung El. My wife made a big deal about buying Korean, so I thought it would be a funny name.
I think all you've done is make the front look like a Mazda .
Don't like it .
I hate to agree, but it looks a little like a toothless grin with it blacked-out.
Thanks for doing this, though. I was considering the same sort of approach to cover the chrome. If it helps at all, the front end of the new Mazda 3 looks much worse. I have a 2006 Mazda 3 with body colored grill, which looks good. The new version is also blacked out, which, to me, also looks like a gaping toothless smile.
Is body colored paint available for the GT? That might look good.
I hope I'm not the only one comparing the front end of cars to human faces.
I agree it does not look good at all. Looks like the grill is missing due to an accident. You can go in the opposite direction and change the bottom 2 grill pieces too chrome. I think it cost about $50.00. BUT check out the grill on the 2016 model -- COOL!!
